Conversion: Driven by Thirst



Not content to live on the surface

Eating, drinking, shopping or buried in entertainment

Aware of a hollow within

Thirsty for more of God’s presence.

Searching for meaning.

Empty, even though  ’saved’

It drove me to


Lombard artist (ca. 1520), Madonna and Child



I stepped out in faith,

Letting go of old prejudices against Catholics


If the Eucharist really was the Body of Christ

Then I needed to ,eat, share

Trusting in the witness of millions of saints who had gone before me

Embracing the unknown,

The mysteries

Walking into the Unknown

To discover that

Mystery is liberating

1447, Fra Angelico,



Embraced by a Heavenly Mother

Surrounded by a cloud of witnesses

Plugged into a Mystical Body



our children 

The Joy of Mothering
